I think our customers could be getting free calls!

Oct 16, 2007
Hi there ... This is actually not an A2Billing issue, but an Elastic billing issue but I couldn't see another forum to ask the question...

Here's the thing:
If a customer makes a voip call... you see it in the Elastix reports section from, say, the Caller id to the calling number.

If then, after 2 minutes, the customer internally TRANSFERS the phone to another extension, I note that the call entry for the first part ends after 120 seconds and a new one starts between the caller id and the internal extension that RECEIVED the internal transfer, but not the calling number.

When calculating the billing, I therefore have been missing these calls as being external, since they only show up as internal ...

In this snippet - Extension 603 is external number 12345 making an SIP call to UK mobile 0777xxx. After 182 seconds 603 transfers to 601. Note that 601 does appear to call 0777xxx at anytime.

As you can see the transferred segment looks like an internal call ....

Any ideas on what I can do to pick this issue up when billing ??? I can I change the report?

Many thanks on a great fork!!
